FujifilmFujifilm digital cameras in Oryx Quest 2005 : International yachtsman, Tony Bullimore, and his crew are currently racing across the South Atlantic to complete the gruelling Oryx Cup 2005 world boat race. Their boat, Daedalus, is currently in second position, and, with the help of calm seas, the determined crew are making good time. To capture the fast-paced race events, Team Bullimore has chosen a selection of Fujifilm digital cameras, including the Fujifilm FinePix F810 with underwater housing, and the Fujifilm FinePix S20 Pro. With many of their competitors pulling out of the race due to equipment failures, Fujifilm digital cameras are proving to be as robust and equipped to deal with the challenge as the rest of the crew.

Tony Bullimore said, "When I am at the razor's edge, racing in the harshest conditions in the world, I rely on my Fujifilm FinePix F810 and its superb waterproof case to capture those incredible moments the world needs to see." Will Rolls, Marketing Manager, Fujifilm Digital Imaging, commented, "With Fujifilm so intensively involved in sports and travel photography, it was a great privilege to be chosen as the preferred digital camera by Team Bullimore. The photos have enabled us to see some of the conditions in the South Atlantic, so we're in no doubt that the FinePix cameras are coming through a monumental endurance test."

Oryx Quest 2005 - The event
The first of two 'Sea Quests' devised by Quest International Sports Events. Oryx Quest 2005 pits the world's largest and fastest sailing machines against each other in a non-stop round the world race that is only expected to take around 50 days. Oryx Quest 2005 is the first non-stop round the world race to start and finish in the Middle East. The race starts on the 5th February 2005 at 14.00. There are only eight of these racing leviathans in existence and at least 6 of these boats will be in Doha, the capital of the Gulf State of Qatar, for the start. The Oryx Quest 2005 route takes the boats down the Indian Ocean and into the Southern Ocean where they will round the Antarctic Continent before rounding the infamous Cape Horn and head eastwards. After rounding The Cape of Good Hope the fleet will turn North and race for the finish line in Doha. The daily dramas, the struggle against the elements of the world's most dangerous environment and the tenacity of the teams will be broadcast for the world to watch. There will be a media person on board each boat sending e-mail updates, pictures and video for the world's media.

Oryx Quest 2005 - The price
The fleet of Maxi Multihulls are racing for a staggering $1 million, the biggest prize in yachting history, and The Oryx Quest Trophy, crafted by William Asprey & Son, London. The trophy standing 56 centimetres high represents the synergy between Qatar and the oceans. Sport is the global language and sailing links nations in the true spirit of competition. Qatar and its sponsors have shown their vision for the future, re-defining sporting endeavour and providing an ideal launch pad for the tourist, business and sporting aspirations of their nation.
